If I could find myself in an alternate universe, there would be all the men I love -- and in this alternate universe all these men I love would find me irresistible and they wouldn't be married.
At B. B. King's on Sunday night, at the Writers Guild of America Award ceremony, amidst a lot of foul-mouthed laughs and sober-minded speeches, writer/director Nora Ephron was remembered.
After a while, I began to wonder why people so often asked after the veracity of my fictions. Why this obsession with ferreting out facts?
For almost 25 years I had it all: career, marriage, motherhood, a beautiful home -- and I was also buried under so many responsibilities for other people that I think of myself as being a member of the "Panini Generation." Worse than just a sandwich, we are squeezed and pressed.
Louis C.K. is a prophet of white male failure in the time when aging caucasian alpha dogs are losing their lock on entitlement as society is increasingly bred to be more inclusive and egalitarian.

Just a few days after comedian Tig Notaro was diagnosed with breast cancer, she found herself on stage at Los Angeles' Largo theater, revealing the news of her illness and delving into other personal struggles.

I asked Lucy why she was telling people that I had back surgery. She said, "Well, it's easier than telling them about the front." We'll, I'll give you that, Lucy. I love that she makes me laugh.
I've been working most recently on a chapter about God's notion of justice as compared with the human idea about justice, and once again, C.K. provided a wealth of material.
